Our firm used to have a book club that was led by our Director of People Development. Our company has about 85 employees and the book club had about 10-15 participants per month. The DoPD was the person who developed, scheduled, and delivered new hire training to all our incoming employees. She would choose books that catered to a sales and business audience, and would usually assign 1-3 chapters per week for folks to read before discussing in a weekly lunch & learn meeting.
When the DoPD left the company, the book club fizzled out. I’ve heard some chatter from folks interested in having it start up again, but nobody is raising their hand to lead the club. We recently hired a Training Specialist that will be leading new hire training moving forward, so my gut says they will be the one best positioned to restart the book club as well.
I hope this helps! If you have any more questions, I’m happy to connect 1:1.
